Description Corpus lexicography involves, first, an analysis of a word, and then, copying of collocations and examples from corpus to dictionary. In a large project, there are hundreds of thousands of items to be copied across. Most modern lexicography takes place on a computer, with both corpus and dictionary editor being software applications and the copying done by re-keying or copy-and-paste. This can be inconvenient and time-consuming. We present a more efficient approach, where the user selects collocations and examples by clicking on tickboxes and the material is automatically structured and formatted according to the particular dictionary’s requirements, ready for pasting into the dictionary editor.
